U.S. Hot List: Fabian Johnson back in the groove

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer and Craig Burley discuss Julian Green's future and how he should conduct himself at Hamburg.

United States coach Jurgen Klinsmann is keeping a close eye on the national team player pool ahead of upcoming friendlies at Denmark on March 25 and in Switzerland six days later.

And after this weekend, Klinsmann must like what he sees, as a number of regulars (plus a few intriguing prospects) are making notable contributions to their club teams.

The competition was fierce this time around; two of this season's success stories -- John Brooks and Timmy Chandler -- continue their steady play...

U.S. Hot List: Alvarado on Klinsmann's radar for call

ESPN FC's Ross Dyer and Craig Burley discuss Julian Green's future and how he should conduct himself at Hamburg.

With the recent news that Club America's Ventura Alvarado may be in line for a call to the United States national team, the Mexican-American joins Tijuana's Greg Garza as Yanks who are performing well south of the border. However, much of the news across the pond is not as bright, as a quarter of the World Cup players are struggling with their respective teams in Europe.

Freddy Adu is hosting nightclubs these days

Freddy Adu, pictured above during his stint with the Philadelphia Union from 2011-13, is a free agent and recently hosted a nightclub party in Washington, D.C.

He was signing multi-million dollar sportswear endorsement deals at 13 and becoming the youngest ever U.S. athlete to sign a professional contract (with DC United) at 14, but since then Freddy Adu's career trajectory has slanted decidedly downwards.

Following a string of uneventful loan moves and trials around Europe, Adu is currently without a club since having seen a short-term contract at Serbian side FK Jagodina elapse in December.

With the trial going cold somewhat since then, Adu's name came...

MLS players' strike: Explaining reasons behind the potential work stoppage

Former MLS player Alejandro Moreno thinks the players are ready to strike, while former New England Revolution coach Steve Nicol thinks a new collective bargaining agreement will be agreed upon.

Things have never been better for MLS. The league continues to grow both in terms of the number of teams and attendance. Frank Lampard, David Villa and Kaka are all poised to begin their first seasons in MLS. Nothing can halt that kind of momentum, right?

Actually there's something that could stop the league dead in its tracks -- a strike by the players. Jeff Carlisle answers all the pertinent questions on the matter.

Q: Why would the players strike?

A: MLS and the MLS Players Union are trying to...

Miguel Ibarra's U.S. rise has opened up questions about his future in the NASL

United States Men's National team head coach, Jurgen Klinsmann notes that he remains optimistic for the future of the USMNT despite the disappointing run of recent results.

Miguel Ibarra meteoric ascension to the U.S. national team has led to interest from MLS clubs and the midfielder has also expressed an interest in playing in Liga MX.

Miguel Ibarra can't stop his head from spinning.

Four months ago Ibarra was essentially an unknown, at least outside of those circles that follow the North American Soccer League and his club, Minnesota United FC. Now after making his first international start for the U.S. in last weekend's 2-0 win over Panama, Ibarra finds his profile increasing at light speed.

"Everything is coming out of nowhere," he told ESPN FC via telephone. "Everything is surprising to me, coming so fast. So far I think I've...
